Sector/Practice Area
Tax, Corporate Tax
Vacancy Type
Lawyers, Private Practice

The corporate tax team at this elite US firm is central to virtually everything it does in EMEA, from supporting the top tier M&A and fund formations teams, to UK and international transactional tax planning and restructuring (and disputes) for some of the largest private equity funds and corporates. 

Matters tend to be bespoke, international and heavily tax driven. As a result, its tax lawyers are given a disproportional level of responsibility for both client relationships and deal tempo. Transactions you will be involved in are generally hybrid debt/equity and multi-jurisdictional and require you to use original thought to correctly structure – you are not just parachuted in part way through a deal. You’ll be part of a deal team from the outset.

The head of the team is a City Stalwart and with the rest of the team made up of leading names, the practice is truly at the top tier.

They are seeking an England & Wales qualified associate, from NQ (including March 2019 qualifiers) up to 2PQE. Strong academics and training (from a top US or UK law firm) are a must, as well as experience of tax matters relating to corporate M&A/private equity, and preferably restructuring and funds also.

As a junior-level lawyer you are promised exceptional work, real responsibility as soon as you are ready and compensation at the top of the market. An exceptional position in one of the most revered teams in the City.
